    We didn't book the bounceback either, we have been three times at that time of year and are ready for a change of season. BUT it is sooo hard knowing we left without using that bounceback. Who knows when any 2013 discounts will come out...if any? It is hard not to have a new ticker yet.:guilty:

    It was the FD offer that has been posted. I'm debating on booking a package with the hopes that it will be made a Disney Visa or general public offer next year.

    We stayed in Rapa Nui back in May (our first trip to Poly) and we really thought it was great. So incredibly easy to get to the TTC, we used it more than the resort monorail!
    Edited to add: It was myself, DH and our DD (4 1/2) and my Mom (who's in her mid-70s). None of minded the walk to the GCH for the resort loop monorail - we used it for our MK outings and dining at the Contemporary. But it was so nice and easy to also get to the TTC for transportation to Epcot, DHS and AK!

    I was there a little over a week ago and the BB offer in the room was a room discount, not FD? When was this BB offer? :confused3

    This sounds hopeful! We can't use FD for Sept. 2013, but a room discount for hopefully fall of 2013 would be very exciting!

    We were there the 15-20? I looked at the BB and it was still the clock with the room discount? Boo on that!

    We wanted a quiet out of the way room again so we asked for
    1. 3rd floor
    2. Tokelau
    3. Fiji
    4. Aotearoa

    Crossed fingers for one of these. We had aotearoa waaaay in the corner. Watched the monorail go by.

    Can't wait to arrive at the Poly in 17 days!! This will be our first time staying there but I doubt it'll be our last. It looks amazing! Some rooms became available for our week and it was a no brainer to switch. A monorail resort that has the amazing Kona Cafe in it? I'll take it!!

    I hope everyone has a great time on their upcoming Poly stays. We enjoyed our 3rd stay there 2 weeks ago. :) We have been blessed with upgrades on the last two trips. :thumbsup2

    Question: I read last year (a year we skipped) they were requiring wristbands for the Poly pool to make sure only Poly guests were swimming there. This was not done for our 2009 or 2010 trip. I anticipated having them this trip, but once again, no wristbands required? Was the wristband only required in 2011? is it seasonal? Just curious. :confused3

    Hi all!
    We are headed to the Poly next month:cool1:
    Always take advantage of the free (or reduced priced) gift with purchase at the Poly along with the one in the parks. In the past, they have been different. Has anyone that has been there lately notice what it was?
    Just curious:scratchin
